Sorry, there are no airings at this time. Please check this page for future updates.

This episode explores the role the spice trails played in creating great cities and destroying ancient civilizations. We visit the Molucca Islands of Indonesia, which is the original home of cloves and nutmeg, and the Indian province of Kerala, where pepper and cardamom were first grown. Other stops include Venice, Beirut, Cairo, China, Spain, and the Caribbean.
